The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical celebrates the Sixties counterculture in all its barefoot, long-haired, bell- bottomed, and fringed glory. To an infectiously energetic rock beat (music by Staten Island’s own Galt MacDermot), the show features popular anthems like “Aquarius,” “Good Morning, Starshine,” “Hair,” and “Let the Sun Shine.” Hair reminds us of such ideals as peace, love, and acceptance — and what it means to be young and believe you can change the world. Directed and choreographed by Darren Lee, music direction by David Sisco.
